The school uniform is a fundamental aspect of the school identity and it presents many advantages for our school community:
- It creates a sense of equality among all students and eliminates competition
- It reduces expense on parents/carers
- It reinforces a sense of pride among students in their school
The cost of a school uniform should never be a barrier to a child attending the school. Therefore, the school will ensure the following:
- We have more than one supplier to provide both competitive pricing and convenience
- Uniform costs and durability are balanced to ensure good value for money
- The school works in conjunction with the Uniform Exchange to ensure donated uniform that is previously worn but in good condition can be accessed by families who need this, free of charge
- The basic school uniform has minimal branding and colour ranges to ensure that suitable alternatives can be found in high street/supermarket stores
- One uniform is suitable for the whole year and no summer/ winter uniform is required
- No specific requirements of coats or bags other than they are suitable for school and the carrying of books/ kit
- Where appropriate and as needed, the school will provide financial assistance for families when cost is a barrier to their child attending school and meeting our uniform expectations. This can be discussed with your child’s Pastoral Manager and agreed on a case by case basis

We have two suppliers for our school uniform:
Uniform Exchange aims to encourage the people of Kirklees to recycle and donate old school uniform items rather than putting them in the bin. There are many families across Kirklees who no longer receive a school uniform grant and benefit from the Uniform Exchange.
In partnership with Local Sure Start Childrenʼs Centres, Kirklees Libraries, and with support from Kirklees Council, Uniform Exchange collect unwanted uniforms, and get them to the children who want them the most, FREE of charge.
